Summary

  • As of February 12, 386 settlements remained without electricity due to hostilities and technological disruptions.
  • Namely, on the night of February 12, Russia launched another drone strike on the energy infrastructure, damaging equipment at an Ukrenergo substation in the Dnipropetrovsk region. Over 53,000 consumers were left without electricity supply.
  • February 7 missile strikes on Kyiv resulted in damage to two 110 kV high-voltage lines, with substations, 19,400 consumers and healthcare facilities offline. The attack also disconnected a section of the district heating network, leaving 355 residential buildings, 5 healthcare and 27 educational institutions, and 84 public buildings without heat supply.
  • While visiting the occupied Zaporizhzhia NPP, the IAEA Director General Rafael Grossi noted that the site has lost external power supply eight times – the last time in December – and switched to back-up diesel generators.
  • Electricity exports increased 7 times to 10.2 GWh; imports increased by 3% to 34.8 GWh. Ukrenergo prepares to launch joint auctions with TSOs of Hungary (February 22) and Slovakia (March 4), which will be held on the JAO platform.

  • GTSOU announced a reduction in the use of natural gas as fuel by 33% in 2023, and of natural gas for technological processes by 59%. One of the likely reasons was reduction of transit volumes by 28% YoY (to 14.65 bcm).
